6:25pm
be used in court. and she has seized on one and over exaggerated it's importance. the district will design if any of the areas may not be applied. >> get ready to see what hard work can accomplish. the children gathered to hear more about their futures. all of the students were looking at, you are looking at will attend either a uc or cal state university. >> we work hard at berkly to street well students who come from the most disadvantaged background. whether they are undocumented students or students with disabili disabilities, so we work hard to level the playing field. >> today was part of the achieve uc system. it's a way to connect with low income students with the concept of higher education. >> still ahead, recovering from

6:27pm
6:28pm
>> decision 2012, the campaign to eliminate the death penalty. look at the undecideds.
6:29pm
17%, which is a large number. the swing vote will be critical. >> we want to become you in for a closer look at both sides. >> thank you, this could be the most emotionally charged issue on the ballot on. there are victims families on each side. there are police and district attorneys on each side. now, i spoke at length with two of the leaders the debate. the exwarden who knows all about death row and a father who knows all about waiting for his daughter's killer to die. they each have given their lives to improving public safety, but they are leagues apart on how to do it. >> california's death row lies inside san quentin and during her five years of being warden, she ordered five executions. and after each of them -- >> someone would say, is the
6:30pm
world safe because of what we did and we knew the answer was no. she is set out for rallying for life in prison no parole. >> we need to take these guys out. >> his 12-year-old daughter, polly, was kidnapped and murdered by richard allen davis. >> these are serial killers. these are mass murderers, these are baby killers. these are individuals without conscious. you better believe if we start executing these guys on death row, there are people out there that will think twice. >> but justice can move slowly. in 34 years just 13 executions. the last to die clarence ray allen in 2006. his 26 years of legal appeals reportedly cost taxpayers $761,000. >> why would we spend so much money on a handful of individuals who are sitting in a
6:31pm
cell over at san quintin right now who are more likely going to die in the cell than be executed. they are caught, they are no longer a public safety threat. >> wood ford and others argue that death penalty savings could be spent fighting crime. prop 34 calls for $100 million fund to help solve murders and rapes. important for public safety because statewide 46% of ho homici homicides, and rapes are not resolved. but people against 34 do not buy it. >> this is not about money for these people. this is about the fact that they will do anything to keep these characters alive. this is about ideology, i know, i have gone to testify for bills up in the legislature that would start to streamline it and they will not let it out of committee. >> appeals can go on for
6:32pm
decades. which is why the exwarden calls the death penalty a fraud. >> because they are not killed soon enough? >> they will likely never be executed. >> class and those who want to keep the death penalty say we could execute condemned killers faster if there was a political will to do so. but executions were halted six years ago, due to another court challenge over the lethal injection being used. raj? >> susan, great to have you with us. four days until election day, both candidates were where else? in ohio, the economy is the buzz word, it remains the buzz word and today, the latest jobs report was released. the unemployment rate went up slightly. but 171,000 new jobs were added and analysts say it's better than expected but not great. president obama a sured voters that it has been improving. >> home values are on the rise. we are less dependent on foreign
6:33pm
oil. >> today we learned it's 9 million jobs short of what he promised, unemployment is higher today than when barack obama took office. think of that. >> both candidates made several stops in ohio, knowing that historically this state can decide who is in the oval office. right now, the president has a two-point lead over governor romney. >> 5 days after super storm sandy, residents are receiving much needed food, water and clothing. officials were a welcome sight for residents of staten island, they have been critical saying that response has been slow to the outer new york city borough, and gas that was been scarce. and public transportation has been limited and hundreds of thousands of residents still do
6:34pm
not have power. >> this is well beyond what any of us have expect can -- expected. >> after public outrage, new york city decided to finally cancel the marathon that was going to be held this weekend. the mayor said that the race would have brought in much needed revenue and sent a message that the city is recovering but residents say the focus needs to be on helping victims, not on a race. >> we want to remind you here, in 90 minutes from now, we will be televising the effort to raise money for the victims of sandy. it will feature big name performers. billy joel, ting, and christina aguilera will take the stage. matt lauer will host the benefit right here at 8:00 p.m., all money raised will go to the american red cross relief efforts. it was just a few days ago, from far and wide, they came,
6:35pm
thousands of bay area residents flooding into san francisco on wednesday. downtown, cheering on the world series champions. the giants. >> and for some, the price of admission was a day off of work and cutting class and school. when students play hooky it can cost the school district big bucks. we look at how much money local schools may have coughed up due to a rise in absences. sam? >> just like everything else in the great state, the school funding formula is really, really complicated. but here is what you need to know. for most schools, state funding is partly determined by an average daily attendance. and that is not attending extra curricular activities. this could be a tough pill for parents to swallow. every day of school your child misses say for example to catch a parade, the school district is likely picking up the tab.
6:36pm
and we know that kids were playing hooky for the parade. aren't you supposed to be somewhere? >> yeah. >> where? >> at school. >> what did you tell your school? >> i am at the giants parade. >> you told the truth? >> sounds like you have a cold. >> maybe that cough is going around. we called up ten local school districts and asked them for their numbers on wednesday, the day of the parade. for those that replied we took the total number of students missi missing and then subtracted that from the average students missing and took that into a revenue formula. the total money lost is what we found. san francisco unified, had $122,000 in state funding by our calculation just from that one day. 158,000 by the school districts'
6:37pm
numbers. with more students missing than on average. the other students missing showed a smaller deviation. it was in line with the range of 12 to 13 hundred and berkley reported 319 absences which is up to par with its normal numbers as well. fremont had 1100 absences but out of a student body population of 33,000. >> and we gave you a flash point of several school districts and contacted other districts who likely would have been impacted by the parade. san mateo and south san francisco and pacific a, none of them responded or would not run the numbers for us. you should note for make up for lost money, sometimes districts will lengthen the school year or even the days in an attempt to do that. back to you. >> and as a parent, you have the option to go to the district and
6:38pm
ask for the money that was lost for the day for your child and they welcome you write the check for the particular amount. each district will have a different amount. 30, 40, $50 and you can give the money back. drop off the check and make up for the absence. >> the end of a popular children's toy. >> and your neighborhood's tree fall on your house, you both have the same insurance company, why a seemingly simple claim has turned into a 7-month ordeal. >> and good evening, i'm jeff in the nbc bay area weather center. showers just a few hundred miles away great santa rosa. we are tracking the latest storm moving in and tick tock, don't forget your clocks. that is right, you want to push them back one hour, so you are not late anywhere heading through sunday.
